Kickstarter Newbie in need of advice HELP!!!!! plz

Hi, My name is Simon and I'm new here

This will be a long post, but plz bare with me as I think there's a lot of people out there just like me ;)

I am the person who has 1000's of ideas but no clue how to get things off the ground, usually it's a financial issue as invention to market is soooooooooo expensive, but then I found "kickstarter" :D :D :D :D :D

However, ideas are the easy part for me, but, and it's a big but, creating videos, photos,rendering, an actual kickstarter page that people will be interested in, all of this leaves me with that look on my face of total confusion.

How do people who are not computer savvy get around these things without spending loads of ££££££££ with a company that says "we can do it all for you, but" and then they drop a massive cost on you.

The whole point of kickstarter is to create a page yourself and give it a shot for funding, but when I look at some of the pages that are doing well they look so professional, how can I compete? do I even need to compete? will my product be good enough on it's own merit if I just put something together as best I can.

Any help you guys can offer would be really appreciated, I'm in the UK.

Thanks for reading, here's hoping for some help :) :) :) :)

Unfortunately, you do need to invest in a quality page (video, images etc.,), long are the days where you could pitch a campaign based on drawings or ideas as there's too many quality competitors out there.
Promote your campaign today with Hyperstarter & use our free tool to identify Kickstarter page problems & fixes:

Hello sir, thank you for the reply

What would you say I'm looking at cost wise to set up a decent campaign? I appreciate it probably differs a lot, but what do you think as a ballpark figure?
